Minus the tiny screen. I only see camera + audio functionalities.

I downloaded it before I realized I didn't have any interest in leaks. Was still in trash bin though.

Edit: Axed the link per comments below.

I read good hard drive space exploration.

Works too.

I see where the criticism is coming from, but I can also see there are all sorts of extenuating circumstances around it (not to mention lack of time) and to take the plot there for a search would kind of kill the story momentum.

This is a blunder on writer's/producer's/etc. They could have written a one-off line where Spock cold-bloodedly says "the needs of the many outweighs the needs of the few." They could have sent rescue shuttles to search the wreckage since it was on the right side of the line early on in the episode. They could have chosen an entirely different solution (seems like flying a shuttle disguised as wreck worked well, toss another stuffed with torpedoes).

It's fine, they'll lampshade it next season.

Wo Long is the harsh reminder that I shouldn't pre-order games. That one water level is quite literally unplayable even at the lowest settings.

CHROME (google) is planing to implement DRM (kinda) into their browser (lemmy.dbzer0.com)

looks like rendering adblockers extensions obsolete with manifest-v3 was not enough so now they try to implement DRM into the browser giving the ability to any website to refuse traffic to you if you don’t run a complaint browser ( cough…firefox )...

From what I've read, the information they're gathering already exists and can be gathered by the server (browser type, user, etc.) with an added layer of encryption to ensure that information isn't tampered with which is easily spoofed today. Of course, this approach doesn't stop folks from tampering with the web browser directly to inject whatever information (outside of maybe what browser they're using since that'll be tied to the key) they want into the payload but that makes closed-source web browsers substantially more trustworthy (aka not Firefox) to site owners.

If this does gain mass market adoption, then yeah, I suspect it will force users to use proprietary web browsers (google chrome, edge, etc.). Which is a step in the direction that Google wants.

I imagine that ad providers (Google) can also start throwing their weight to force mass adoption by de-monetizing non-compliant browsers, which may pressure site owners to not serve non-compliant browsers.

Correct me if I'm mistaken.

Getting back into Alien: Fireteam Elite for some causal fun before making my 4th attempt to complete Tales of Zestiria.

What's your views on PIC season 3?

I’m currently rewatching it, and at first I admit I hated the season and didn’t understand all the praise it got, but on this second viewing, I am actually warming up a bit to it. It still is deeply flawed, with a lot of things that don’t make sense or could have been done better, but I kinda like it regardless. What do...

I imagine this is closer to what fans were looking forward to when the Picard show was first announced. I still massively cringe to the memory of Han Data flying the Millennium Enterprise through the Borg structure, but otherwise I like it.

There's a Helldivers 2??!?!!
They switched to over-the-shoulder, interesting. Hope they bring back the vehicles/death traps!

Skill Up - Here's why I'm very keen for Remnant II (Hands-on impressions) (www.youtube.com)

Remnant II certainly is more Remnant, but it's by no means resting on its laurels. There are some big changes coming to core elements of the experience - from class design to visuals to procedural generation and more. Based on my hands-on time with it, all the new stuff is paying off - big time....

I enjoyed Remnant 1: the only souls-like with a proper focus on gun play that I know of. Hope 2 improves upon the predecessor.

It was a fun ride overall. Especially with Kirk basically treating the mission as a field trip for the first 20 minutes. I'm glad I didn't completely jumped ship after Paul Wesley's incredibly wooden delivery of "oh my god, what have you done" nearly broke me. Meanwhile, the romance felt forced and rushed to me, so I didn't feel much at the end. But the most shocking reveal to me: George Kirk... is apparently still on the Enterprise?!

Hasn't been since at least FFXIV.

I'm just praying they released it in a somewhat optimized state even if it takes longer to reach pc. Devs nowadays seemed to have abandoned optimization for pc on release (Wo Long and Jedi Survivor comes to mind).

100000% So monstrous. I don't understand it. I'd love to understand the motivations behind the senseless killing. There hasn't been any new updates afaik outside of a pic of the perp.

"So you can do away with the clickbait-y, karma or like farming..."

Are there many individual users who participate in these type of activities?

My understanding is that a lot of it is automated: farming with the intent to make accounts look legitimate and eventually manipulate public opinion to whatever ends (like selling a product/service).

Is kbin doing anything different that would curb or dissuade such behavior?

Thoughts on Calyx Institute internet plans?

I'm planning to potentially turn off my wired internet access currently being provided by Comcast. The proposed speeds and pricing is already better than the current plan I'm on, plus I can avoid the hassle of switching ISP when I move, and the fact that it is a privacy focused non-profit makes this attractive to me. I've signed up for a free trial with t-mobile to test out the infrastructure before committing.

Anyone tried it?

@tate

That's great to hear! I'll likely move ahead with my plans then, it's comforting to know that at least someone is using it.
